A discussion & guide to moving forward from your orthopedic surgery.
How it works:
BEFORE SURGERY: Prior to surgery, a phone consultation with one of our PTs through our Move to Recover program allows you to enter your procedure with the knowledge you need. We’ll discuss what you can expect following your surgery as it relates to range of motion, pain, and physical limitations. Depending on your case, we may recommend “prehab” (physical therapy prior to surgery) to prepare your body mentally and physically for what’s to come. The benefits of prehab may include:
AFTER SURGERY: Through the Move to Recover program, one of our PTs will speak with you post-surgery to answer your follow up questions. We’ll discuss activity guidelines and describe what you can expect on your road to recovery.
We may recommend you come into the clinic for physical therapy following your surgery. We’ll work together to restore strength, flexibility, and function, following guidelines from your surgeon and keeping them updated on your progress.
ACCESS: We provide this service free of charge, with no doctor referral required. However, we will work closely with your surgeon to follow orders they may have for pre- or post-op. We offer this program as a service to our medical community in order to provide the in-depth conversations patients may need during this time.
"I highly recommend Specialized Physical Therapy (SPT). You walk in the door at the North Asheville location and are immediately met by Kari, the outgoing and super organized receptionist. Then you are met with a smile by the same dedicated and knowledgeable person who explains and helps you through your individualized hands-on therapy session. Taylor and his skilled assistants are terrific - they listen to you and watch you and care about you. The equipment is state-of-the-art. When I leave SPT, I breathe a little deeper, walk a little taller, and feel a whole lot better. I always look forward to my next appointment. Parking is plentiful. Don’t miss this gem with a happy, upbeat vibe!"~ Margery (Google Review)
